Thoughts on spartan warning

Last two days its been getting hotter out. Yesterday got back in my truck after driving it a while and when i turn it on fuel rail temp is at 140*F and spartan warns for about a second then temp drops pretty fast. Today same thing I turn the truck on and the temp is at 150*F. Spartan warns me till it comes back down under 140. Temp drops pretty quickly is it just the tuner trying to get the right temp reading or is there a problem?

No problem, I've heard of this issue. Non issue really. All that's happening is that when you first start the truck the fuel that had been sitting in the cooler and rails has risen above the 140 mark, not hard to believe it when you consider hot outside, hot engin bay. After a few, cooler fuel makes it's way to the temp sensor and the alert goes away. The only time it would be a cause for concern is if you were seeing sustained temps over that 140 mark.
